HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, March 12, 1864  The full front page is a print captioned: "Major-General William T. Sherman".  Page 2 has an interesting article concerning an avoidance of the term "slavery" which begins: "The slaveholders *& their friends have always tried to avoid using the word Slavery. It is too direct & expressive. It is the synonym of injustice & crime and every body knows it as such. Therefore we have been regaled with all kids of euphemisms. The first is in the constitution--'persons held to labor.'..." and more.
